Seapanes: Dress Review & ootd

    Oh, how I loved this dress when I saw it on Anthropologie's site.  How patiently I waited for the day it would go on sale.  That day finally came and of course my size sold out.  But this dress popped up on a resale site for the same as it would have been on sale, so I bought it as part of my blue dress buying spree in October.  
    While it is a lovely dress, I'm actually pretty disappointed in several key features.  The dress has a slip sewn into it, which creates an odd, puckering fold at the waist.  This would have been easy to avoid this by simply having the slip be a separate piece.  The other glaring flaw is that this same slip does not go over the bra line at the back, so the bra shows through unless you want to add yet another layer.  
    I can't see myself wearing this dress much without some modifications.  I'm still thinking about how to fix these flaws, or if it's even possible.  I'll keep you posted.  In the mean time, if you happen to come across this dress on a resale site or market place like Ebay, I would not recommend paying much for it even in new condition.  This is an instance of a really cool design that was poorly executed and over priced.
